The Bhutan Football Federation (BFF) has revised its league structure in an attempt to boost the sport in the country.
According to a BBS report, the new format will have the Bhutanese football league being played in three divisions from now on.
According to the report, the new format was forwarded to the club owners and managers in Thimphu on December 31 last year.
As per the revised format, top teams will take part in the the Bhutan Premiere League. It will have the top five teams of the BoB National League 2018 and Bhutan Super League.
It will be a single leg league played in Thimphu only. The double leg league is slated to begin from June next year.
The third division league- the Dzongkhag League, is expected to feature 10 teams each from Thimphu, Paro, Phuntshogling and Punakha. The competition will be played in respective districts.
The top team from the participating districts will qualify for the Super League.
The report further claims that some club owners have expressed apprehension over the Dzongkhag League. They say the league had a lukewarm response because of attaching less importance to it with lesser budget and matches.
It is learnt that suggestions were forwarded to make the Dzongkhag League available in other parts of the country as well.
The new format is expected to come into play with the Bhutan Super League in April next.
